Are there any college basketball magazines this year? I have not seen one. I have them going back to the 1970 season.

I got Lindys on Amazon.  Blue Ribbon is out, though have not received it yet.  Have not seen anything for Street & Smith.

"Paying players" is considerably different from letting athletes benefit financially from their own names, images and likenesses. Most in the media (that I have seen) are for the latter. I don't see many talking about the former.

Personally, capitalist that I am, I'm for whatever the market will bear, supply-and-demand, and all that other good non-socialist stuff. But NIL would at least be a good, fair start.

Many P6 coaches make more than $10 million. TAMU didn't say per annum. Even Wojo's contract was worth more than $10M total. And quite a few have multi-year contracts worth multiple tens of millions of dollars.

Marquette has been tearing down buildings, putting up new buildings, buying up properties and land around campus, etc. Millions upon millions upon millions of dollars being spent. Of course, those were planned during financial good times, as if tough times couldn't possibly ever arrive.

I am not saying MU shouldn't have done most or all of that, because I am not close enough to the situation to know. But it is a fact that MU has been spending money like a drunk congressperson these last many years, as have many colleges and universities.

though keep in mind a small percentage of that $10 million plus is actually paid from university funds. Most is paid from outside sources such as donors, Nike/Adidas/UA, media deals, camps, etc.
What, you still throwing up bricks? What is this, a Masons convention? Clank, clank! I need, like, a welding torch to play in this league! I got an idea, let's just stop right now and gather up all these bricks and let's build a shelter for the homeless so maybe your mother will have a place to stay

Good luck. 
Luke 6:45   ...A good man produces goodness from the good in his heart; an evil man produces evil out of his store of evil.   Each man speaks from his heart's abundance...

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.

I remember when I used to look forward to their release - I’d buy ‘em all and read them cover to cover.

I do not read them like I use to. I pretty much look at MU's opponents. I also want to keep my collection going.

We can't even agree on teal.  Maybe I'll start using it exclusively.

Not if you believe Al.

Street and Smiths

"Celebrations for NIT championship done, Al McGuire sounded subdued, which is very unlike Al McGuire. "I've never lost four of my first six players before," he sighed. "We won't get out of the gate fast." He was heard predicting a .500 year after four winters of 21-9, 23-6, 24-5, 26-3 and a place each time in the tournaments.

Al's two leftovers are 6-1 Dean (The Dream) Meminger and 6-6 Gary Brell. The task of Brell (12.2 average) is harrassment and leaping for stray basketballs. Meminger's job is more varied.

Meminger made All-America with 19 point scoring. "The Dream is the most unselfish player I've ever coached," says McGuire. "If we ran, he score 30, but he plays our offense and controls it and plays defense, and that's what we want." The senior from New York is also Marquette's captain, appointed by the coach "because he's an excellent leader, and being my leader is too important to leave to locker room politics."

Acknowledge as another starter is 6-11 Jim Chones, the big center recent Warrior teams haven't had, a sophomore who merely "has more ability than anyone I've ever been associated with," his coach says. 6-5 Hugh McMahon and 6-0 Gary Grzesk are lettermen offered first shot at the other two positions. Grzesk must overcome knee surgery, and both must overcome some sophomores -- 6-3 George Frazier, 6-4 Kurt Spychalla, 6-3 Allie McGuire. Young Allie has had a lifetime adjusting to the benevolent dictatorship of his coach, being his son.

And there is also one Bob Lackey. He measures 6-6 and 211, was junior college All-American with 23 point, 18 rebound statistics, and he can play on anybody's team. After he landed Lackey and looked again at his sophomores, McGuire sounded like himself again: "if we don't get out of the gate too slow, we can get into a tournament.""

There wasn't really another thread to put this so it seemed like as good of one as any:

https://www.cbssports.com/college-basketball/news/2020-21-cbs-sports-college-basketball-preseason-awards-our-player-coach-and-freshman-of-the-year/?ftag=SPM-16-10abi8e

Wojo not listed as one of the 5 on the hot seat or 6 (dis)honorable mentions. There are three or four listed that have been suggested as possible Wojo replacements....so they may be on the market soon?

Please don't mistake this as a Projo "see, Wojo is awesome" post. Wojo isn't appearing on any preseason coach of the year lists either. Just a reminder that while many here are near or past the point of wanting Wojo fired, the national perception is that he has done enough to stay away from the hot seat.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

I'd still list them as the favorites, but if Antoine is out for an extended period of time, Nova won't be as deep.

Agree that stinks for the Kid. Nova was 5-13 the last year of the Old BE. Will Nova ever be 5-13 in the New BE. In the New BE Nova Wins 2 Titles and Jay Wright Wins Coach of the Decade. Again it stinks for the kid but Nova though not as deep will keep Winning.
